What Can You Do About Diet and Exercise Resistant Fat?

Over and over, we hear, “I eat right, and I exercise, but my fat just won’t go away.” The truth is that all of us have some fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. So, don’t beat yourself up about that last little bit of fat you can’t get rid of.

What can you do about diet and exercise resistant fat? CoolSculpting Elite® may be the solution.

Through CoolSculpting, we can target and freeze your stubborn fat. Following treatment, your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells and flushes them out. This can result in up to 20-25% reduction of stubborn fat per treatment in the treated area. Your fat continues to melt away over several months.

What is CoolSculpting Elite®?

It’s a non-invasive body contouring treatment that permanently freezes fat with little downtime and no surgery. With the new advanced Elite technology, we freeze two times the stubborn fat with dual applicators. As a result, we can treat two areas at the same time it used to take to treat one.

What areas can I treat with CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to eliminate stubborn fat under the jawline, under the chin, the upper arms, back fat, bra fat, the flank area (love handles), abdomen, thighs, and under the buttocks (banana roll). We can pinpoint your exact trouble spots and customize your treatment plan to your body contouring goals. So not only will your clothes fit and look better, but you’ll feel better, too.

How Long Does a Treatment Take?

A CoolSculpting® treatment typically takes as little as 35-75 minutes, depending on the area treated, with treatment sessions lasting one to three hours on average. We recommend two or more treatment sessions for most patients to help you reach your body contouring goals.

How long do results last?

Once your treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, though. It reduces fat. Your remaining fat cells function as normal and can get bigger or smaller depending on your weight loss or weight gain.

Am I a candidate?

The best candidates are active and eat healthily, but they still have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away. If you’re ready to learn how CoolSculpting can target your trouble spots, your first step is a consultation at our office. Our CoolSculpting providers at PSC Aesthetics will develop a plan to fit your goals.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Our CoolSculpting patient feels much more confident after her treatments.

Tell us about your journey to the CoolSculpting treatment:

PSC Patient: I am a skincare patient and heard about the treatment. I thought it would be good for my problem areas, so I tried it out. I have had several treatments on my tummy, arms and one on my inner thighs.

Tell us about the procedure:

PSC Patient: The treatment is pretty easy. There is a little pinch when it starts, and then it gets really cold. After that, the area becomes numb. During the treatment, I usually relax, sleep, or look at my phone.

How did you feel after the treatment? 

PSC Patient: I usually feel sore and tender after my treatments. Each area is a little different, though. I also experienced some itching about a week after my inner thigh treatment. I wore compression garments, and that made it better.

When did you notice your results?

PSC Patient: You feel tighter right away and know something is happening. A month to six weeks later, I really started to see results. My waistband isn’t as snug now, and nothing is hanging over it. I know my results will continue to improve.

Do you feel different now?

PSC Patient: I am definitely more confident. I feel better, and it’s a confidence builder. I do CoolSculpting for myself.

Are you happy with your results?

PSC Patient: I am very happy and would do it again. It’s a boost for me. It’s a great treatment as you get older and have stubborn fat.

Do you have advice for people considering CoolSculpting Elite?

PSC Patient: Do your research. Like anything, there can be side effects. Find someone who has been doing CoolSculpting for a while, is knowledgeable, and whom you trust. You want someone to tell you if it’s for you honestly.
